Please join us for National Catholic Schools Week, our annual celebration of what makes education at Holy Name Catholic School outstanding. Starting with Sunday Mass on January 27, we have a whole week of activities planned to show what our students are accomplishing and to celebrate the community we have built to educate tomorrow’s citizens and church leaders. We will have a detailed calendar of our activities on our website https://holynamewinfield.org/school.
The theme of our celebration is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” The theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, educators are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed.
The theme also focuses on key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence and dedication to service. These elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options. They are why our parishes and families make sacrifices to provide our children with a Catholic education.
I hope you will visit Holy Name Catholic School during National Catholic Schools Week to enjoy the students and learn about their faith development and all we have to offer here. Please bring your friends and neighbors, particularly those who may be considering Catholic education for their children.
I am grateful every day for the parishes, teachers, staff, council members, parents and volunteers who make our school a success. National Catholic Schools Week is a good time for all of us to thank them for their dedication and service. I hope you will join us in celebrating and giving thanks for the beautiful gift we have been given in an outstanding Catholic education.
Devotedly yours in Christ,
Mrs. Kim Porter
